Michigan Ave Animal Hospital saved my dog Desi's life! He developed a large tumor, and another vet he was seeing kept suggesting to either have very expensive surgery, or put him down. But he acted as though nothing was wrong! He was happy, eating, and there was no way I was letting him go! The other vet wanted 700.00 down to operate and the surgery would be nearly 2000.00. I couldnt come up with the 700, and by this time his tumor was bleeding and coming apart! I contacted the Mich Ave animal hospital and they got him in right away, and the Dr. informed me about Care Credit, which took just minutes to approve, and he charged under 1000.00 for the surgery, with NO out of pocket expense! 2 weeks later, and Desi had his stitches removed, (no charge), and is doing wonderful! Thank you Dr Dhaliwal for this special Christmas present, by saving Desi!

Ava was spotted by a Good Samaritan lying by the side of the road with an injured leg.  Knowing the humane society had a vet on staff they drove her there hoping she would get the medical care she needed and deserved while waiting for her family to find her.
10 days later a friend of the family that dropped this little girl off at the humane society called to let them know that her family never called for her and she was going to be put down at 10:00 AM.

About two weeks ago I brought my english bulldog puppy(Oscar) in to see Dr. Dhaliwal. Since having been turned away by numerous vets because no one wanted to perfrom the surgery on my little puppy Oscar because of little to no experience with a salivary gland surgery. Dr. Dhaliwal has done this type of surgery before and was able to help Oscar. His staff was very kind and courteous and treated Oscar as if he was their puppy. I wanted to say thanks for everything and I would without a doubt be coming here for any of Oscar's veterinary needs. Anthony Mach December 2012.

Early fall of 2014 my male Boxer, “Chachee” was diagnosed with a Perineal Hernia. A common condition I discovered that affects male dogs that are intact. It is a muscle tear near the rectal wall. I learned more about this condition when I went to Michigan Avenue Animal Hospital Website. At this site it goes into depth about this condition. I found this very helpful. I immediately made a call and arrange a consultation with Dr. Dhaliwal. I drove with Chachee from Farmington Hills to Ypsilanti the day after Thanksgiving. Dr. Dhaliwal was excellent explaining and sketching to me what actually happened with my Boxer. More importantly in the past year alone Dr. Dhaliwal performed eight Perineal Hernia surgeries.  After talking to him about the Art of Surgery, he explained each surgery is different.  Before a surgery begins, he mentally goes through all the steps. Dr. Dhaliwal shows great passion at his craft as a surgeon. Chachee also was fond of him as well. At this point I arranged to prepare him for his up and coming surgery. That day his team did the blood work and other tests to see if Chachee was healthy for this surgery.
We planned Chachee’s surgery during the school holiday break, since I am an educator. This way we could care for him post-op. Chachee had his surgery on a Friday, and picked him up at the hospital late Saturday afternoon. The operation went well. Dr. Dhaliwal repaired the muscle, and also castrated Chachee. On the third day I could see my dog acting normal and looking healthy.  He played with his toys even though he had a shield on. The following Saturday Chachee had a check-up with Dr. Dhaliwal. He checked his beautiful stitch work and was very happy of his progress on healing. A week later Chachee and I were back to remove his stitches.
Well, two weeks have past since Chachee’s stitches were removed and his shaved area is starting to grow his beautiful brindle coat. I decided to have Dr. Dhaliwal and his team for my veterinarian services. The drive for us to Michigan Avenue Animal Hospital is worth the professional surgical skills and great hospital facilities they have. I highly recommend them to my friends both human and four legged babies.

A very special thank you to Michigan Avenue Animal Hospital.
Bella_after-Achilles-SurgeryA few months ago my prized bird hunting dog/family pet tore her
Achilles tendon, after many phone calls and a lot of research I was directed to Dr. Dhaliwal. The surgery went great, my dog's leg was in a cast and I Bella _achilles-tendon-surgerykept her in a 6' x 6' pen most of the day for about 6  weeks to allow healing. Following the protocol for this surgery is extremely important, and I'm glad I did. 6 weeks after Bella's cast was removed, I was able to take her out for a short training session in the field and she performed exactly as well as she did prior to her accident. I am so grateful to now see her healing so well! Dr Dhaliwal guided me through every stage of the healing process which was a great help, the staff always treated me very kindly during the many follow-up's with the recasts. I must say Michigan Avenue Animal Hospital is the neatest, cleanest and nicest vet. hospital I have visited too. I have had several hunting dogs over 20 years with many unfortunate veterinary visits, without a doubt I will not go anywhere else for any serious issue for my dogs. When your pet needs a serious surgery, having things go as smooth as possible is PRICELESS! Thanks to much Dr, Dhaliwal

My English Setter, Ellie is a cancer survivor and "tripawd" since her amputation due to Osteosarcoma in July 2012. She has done remarkably well, all because of the care she has received at MAAH. Any time I have needed to have her or my Pug seen, it has always been the same day, working around my work hours. I have never been more satisfied with care for my pets and at reasonable cost. I owe a lot to Dr. Dhaliwal and his staff.
